The EY Exhibition: Sonia Delaunay” closes at the Tate Modern 

“Trained early on in drawing and painting, the ambitious Delaunay was not content to limit her creativity, giving her attention equally to the applied arts and fine art. She filled all areas of her life with art and was herself a sort of living tableau. Skillfully building and marketing her brand in an otherwise male-dominated era, Delaunay emerged as an influential tastemaker and bastion of Modernism.”

SATURDAY, AUGUST 8

Tino Sehgal” closes at Martin Gropius Bau

“It’s all classic Sehgal, but what’s deliciously new and disarming is the cumulative effect of multiple Sehgal pieces running concurrently together. Suddenly the spaces between the works are perceptible, and this interstitiality seems to become a piece in itself. (Sehgal has said that the exhibition is “five and a half” situations, and I’m guessing this might be his extra half.)”

Donna Huanca & Przemek Pyszczek: Muscle Memory” closes at Peres Projects

“The play structures’ potential for children’s use has been abstracted away by Pyszczek’s cuts, and the bars’ worthiness to fend off a robber has also all but been eliminated. But Pyszczek’s creations manage to skirt the polished finish that might otherwise allow their loaded history and creative process to be sloughed off. The sculptures are not Koons-ified objects powder-coated to perfection but rather industrial tubes with cut edges left jagged, obviously hand-painted in found color palettes.”

Sunday, August 9

A suite of inaugural exhibitions, including “Katharina Grosse: Yes No Why Later,” “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Theory,” and “The Family Tree of Russian Contemporary Art” close at the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art.

“Unveiling an institution by placing a minimum 1,000-year timeline ahead of it is by no means a subtle gesture. “We are here forever, to the end,” said Anton Belov, who has served as Garage’s director since 2010, as previews of the new Rem Koolhaas-designed museum commenced. Throughout the Garage Museum’s eight inaugural exhibitions, the commitment to that long historical tail rings remarkably true.”
